Masiphumelele Library hosts a number of volunteer groups promoting a love of learning, language learning, skills development and a broader vision of life amongst the children of the township.
Focus in the latest newsletter, In Touch, issued by Masiphumelele Library is on the Philosophy Club and Thinking Skills group, the Homework and the False Bay College Outreach Club and on some of the passionate volunteers.
Speaking about the benefits of belonging to the False Bay College Outreach Club students had this to say:
“(It) benefits the building of self esteem, improvements to speech, language, vocabulary and public speaking, as well as the development of self trust and a positive self image….(we also appreciate) the encouragement to think about (our)selves in a ‘free form’ non-judgemental environment, uninhibited by language skills or culture.”
